Here we get a glimpse into the creative and technical process that took place during the filming of El Capitan. Shot in art director Diana Markessinis' welding shop in the oldest neighborhood in Santa Ana CA, the set was created predominately with objects found in her shop and at a couple local junk yards. Much of the painted pieces and props were created by the all-in-wonder Nataila Wong, and our DP Joshua Lang served double duty hand-crafting all the puppets from wire and a torn up pair of jeans.

We also get a directing 101 lesson from Ali Akbarzadeh about how to handle expressions from inanimate objects.

Technically speaking we shot this on a Canon 5D and the slow motion on pair of T2i's. This was our first major project using DSLR's, they look amazing, and without worrying about sync sound the editing process was streamlined.
